In aftermath of ‘Bama-A&M, calm and perspective
Much like Saban, Sumlin could take solace in knowing it will get no tougher for his team than it did Saturday. And he can be encouraged that his team didn’t fold when the Tide rolled out to a 35-14 third-quarter lead.
“We just played a really good football team. There’s a reason they’re the No. 1 team. I was proud of the effort,” Sumlin said. “We didn’t always do everything right. Nobody can say that this team quit.”
Round 1 of `Bama vs. A&M went to the Aggies in Tuscaloosa last year. Manziel went on to win the Heisman Trophy but Alabama still won the SEC and national championships.
With fall only a few days away, there is still plenty left to be decided.
“Last year we were the team dancing around on their field and having a good time. They probably felt like we feel right now,” Sumlin said. “You’ve got no greater example of how to handle one game than the team in the other locker room. They went on to have an extremely successful season.
“Our goals are still out in front of us.”
